BELLAMY: CHELSEA DID THE RIGHT THING
Craig Bellamy believes that Chelsea did the right thing by allowing Thibaut Courtois to join Real Madrid after the Belgian international made clear his desire to move for personal reasons.
Speaking on SSN, Bellamy said: “It was just a matter of
time. Chelsea made the right noises as well, if they were going to get a
goalkeeper in, they weren’t going to stand in Courtois’ way.
“They’ve paid a lot of money now for a goalkeeper [Kepa] they
obviously rate highly. The manager now is starting to find his feet, it’s still
early days for him at the football club but I look at the Courtois deal as it
was inevitable, he had personal reasons and Chelsea have done the right thing.
“It’s a great loss to the Premier League because he is an
outstanding goalkeeper but actually I’m quite excited to see who they’ve got
now. It could be a great bit of business for them in the long run.”
